Will you help with this sign in Glenville, West Virginia?Meet the Trails Team. 🤝

Our small team works hard everyday but rely on our sponsors, visitors, and volunteers to keep us running. You are part of our team too.

Today, we are asking you to pitch in to help us keep this sign standing in West Virginia. The "Attack on Glenville" sign located in Gilmer is the only Civil War Trails site in the County. We hope you can step up to fill our ranks by raising $200 today.

Why? 🤔

Each of our #civilwartrails sites need a sustaining sponsor to ensure that we can maintain and update the interpretive and directional signs and distribute the maps to ensure the world knows about each of these places. Occasionally we lose a sponsor and this year is no different.

Civil War Trails provides over 1,200 #openairmuseum experiences across six states ranging from signs located on picturesque battlefields, along wooded hiking trails, or around corners in historic downtowns.

Your donation is tax deductible and ensures that we can keep telling these stories and encouraging visitation to these sites, towns, and to support local businesses. We understand the financial strain that COVID has placed on many of you and our partnering communities and we are thankful for a donation of any size or just some simple well wishes!

Make a donation today. In any amount by following this link.

Thanks for sharing this. We rarely have signs lose a sponsor but these are lean times for many. We hope today with a few bucks per person we can raise the $200 to keep this one.
